Jones warns Sinckler about conduct

England coach Eddie Jones has told Kyle Sinckler that his England career will be in jeopardy if he does not learn from his arrest in  New Zealand.

The prop was arrested after an altercation in an Auckland nightclub hours after the third Test between the British and Irish Lions.

The 24-year-old was escorted back to the hotel by police whereafter he apologised for his actions to tour manager John Spencer.

And Jones has warned that any further indiscretions could harm his hopes of attaining further caps for England.

"He has to understand that the team comes before the individual," Jones told the Daily Mail.

"If he wants to develop his rugby career, that’ll be the big thing for him. It’s a good lesson to have and everyone will see that and learn from it. If they don’t, they are in strife.

"You need to pick the right place to have a drink. After the third Test for the Lions you don’t go to a crowded club in Auckland. You’re going to have every idiot in Auckland wanting to take him on because they know he’s a hot head.

"There’ll be some bloke saying to his mate, 'Hey, go and talk to that idiot over there'. The experienced players don’t go to those clubs. It’s not a black mark against him — but it will be if he does it again."
